Google'sstatement pointed out that Amazon has refused to sell some of its own hardware devices, such as the Google Home speakers and Chromecast, and Amazon also does not support its Prime Video service for Google Cast devices.
However, a couple of weeks ago, the YouTube app returned to Echo Show - a signal that seemed to indicate all was well between the companies. Google seems to be betting that Amazon will want to get YouTube back up and running on its flagship video products before long, so it can afford to take a hard line here.
At the start of 2018, YouTube - which is owned by Google and boasts more than one billion users - will not be available on Amazon Fire TV devices. Amazon's high-end Echo Show has a screen that can display video. The passive-aggressiveness continues even then as you still can't stream from Amazon's Prime Video app to your Chromecast. Amazon can't claim they didn't see this coming: Google is famously picky about standards when it comes to other people's platforms. These smart home devices directly rival Amazon's smart home products. Sans YouTube, Amazon looks to be banking on its in-house services and against the Chcolate Factory's built-in customer base.
The two companies are selling competing gadgets that connect users' TVs to the internet. Customers who ultimately live in a world where they're not choosing between Amazon or Google, but may use products and services from both.
Amazon responded in a statement, "Google is setting a disappointing precedent by selectively blocking customer access to an open website".

"We hope we can reach an agreement to resolve these issues soon", the Google spokeswoman said. "We hope we can reach an agreement to resolve these issues soon". The "lack of reciprocity" led Google to kill YouTube on Amazon's products.
